Autism Berkshire

Autism Berkshire

Autism Berkshire was set up in 1990 by parents of children with autism, autism-related problems and challenging behaviours.

We now have more than 300 members, including individuals, families and professionals.

The main aims of the charity are to provide a comprehensive advice and information service for parents, carers and professionals.

You can call our helpline from Monday to Friday on 01189 594 594 (option 1) or email our advisers at

We support parents and carers of children on the autism spectrum or whose children are waiting for a Berkshire CAMHS autism assessment, by running a wide range of workshops and courses on aspects of autism and supporting autistic children and young people with autism, including sensory needs and managing anger. Through the Berkshire Adult Autism Support Service, we help autistic adults and their parents/carers.

Autism Berkshire also provides training to professionals to raise awareness and understanding of autism and issues associated with autism.  

The charity issues the Thames Valley Autism Alert Card.
